"I met Wilford when we did Our House together. He taught me a lot on that show," Doherty says of their 1986-88 NBC drama series, which starred Brimley, who died last week at age 85. "He also gave me a horse named Brownie. Taught me how to ski in Utah. Had 2 African Grey’s that would curse and call his dogs only to laugh at them when they came running. He gave big hugs and told great jokes. He was in fact like a grandpa to me for a very long time. He was talented and will be missed." ALSO: Deidre Hall remembers her Our House co-star Brimley.
